‘Oscar” Railway Carriage – Cloughton

This brilliantly converted railway carriage was built in Derby in 1960. It still stands on the original line of what used to be Cloughton Station, ideal for people looking for an unusual stay. It may not look like it in photos, but the carriage really is spacious and has all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay.

What can I do in Cloughton? You may ask. Cloughton is in a great location, and it’s only six miles from Scarborough. If you enjoy long walks, or just want to view some of the most beautiful places around – don’t miss out on visiting the North Yorkshire coast and North York Moors. But that isn’t all, you can also visit some pretty amazing places around National Trust and Heritage sites.

What to do in Medstead? This village may not be as popular as other cities in the UK, but don’t let that fool you. Meadstead is small but it has some great places worth a visit. You will be surprised by some of the cool things to do and places to explore at this hidden destination. Go on nature walks, visit some of the great bars and restaurants. If you love reading – here’s a thought. Go on a little day trip (25 minutes drive) to Hampshire to visit Jane Austen’s House! This is a fantastic museum where the famous author lived and wrote.

Here we have something you are going to love! At Hattingley valley vista you can enjoy the stunning view from the verandah or lotus spa with a drink in your hand, and just take a moment to appreciate the peaceful wonderful landscape.

Why is this serviced acommodation called The Horse Hut? The name kind of says it all, doesn’t it? It was once mounted on the back of a lorry and used for Polo and Shire horse shows. It has been converted to a luxury serviced accommodation, but it still maintains its horsey heritage!
